FLL Update 12/8/2014

Dec 08

Members of the First Lego League Robotics team from Dripping Springs Middle School took a short field trip to Carol Taylor’s second grade class on Friday. The Turbine Tigers team has been working on how to better teach the topic of wind energy to young kids. They are building a website, incorporating age-appropriate student-produced videos, jokes, games, and wind energy facts. Mrs. Taylor’s class watched the team perform one of their original skits, learned about wind energy, built models of wind turbines, and gave feedback on how to improve the site.

The team has been preparing for the regional FLL competition that will be held on December 13th at DSHS, which will include a robotics competition as well as presentations of the team projects.
